First Tadiæ, now Biden

The American Vice President Joseph Biden is planning to visit Monastery Deèani on May 21, 2009, as reported by the US Embassy in Priština.

His Grace Artemije, Ruling Bishop of the Diocese of Ras and Prizren, has decided not to give his permission for this visit to take place.

The American Vice President comes to visit Kosovo as an independent state and so confirm the forcible separation of a part of the territory of the sovereign state of Serbia and handing it over to Albanian terrorists, who have committed with impunity numberless crimes against the Serbian people, Serbian property and Serbian religious and cultural heritage.

By doing so, does Joseph Biden wish to confirm also that Monastery Deèani in Kosovo-Metohija is an American base like Bondsteel?

Unfortunately, under its present administration Monastery Deèani has become known for activities detrimental to Serbian interests which have, in a sense, transformed it into a bastion of anti Serbian activities in Kosovo-Metohija, as is confirmed by this visit.

In order to put an end to, and refute, activities such as these on the part of Monastery Deèani, Bishop Artemije has adopted the decision mentioned above.
